BAM is fully embracing digital ways of working to deliver benefits for our business, supply chain, clients and end users.
We were one of the first contractors to achieve the BSI accreditation for PAS1192.
Our approach to digital is shaped from the outset by our clients’ requirements.
We work within a common data environment to ensure we get the right data, at the right time for use across an asset’s lifecycle.
BAM has a market leading whole life BIM approach, which runs from concept through to operations, ensuring that assets are fit for purpose from day one and deliver the desired outcomes.
We build digitally before building on site, facilitating greater collaboration, reducing risk and unlocking new opportunities.
We are using the latest technologies including robotics, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality and modular/offsite construction.
Technologies such as virtual, mixed and augmented reality enable the project team, client and stakeholders to experience an asset before it is constructed.
Using a virtual viewer, individuals can walk through a building and gain a better understanding of the space and how it meets requirements.
We are also able to create virtual fit outs, complete with fixtures, fittings, finishes and lighting, so that clients and potential tenants can see how a floor, room or retail unit will reflect their brand experience.
Robotics and 3D printing
BAM is adopting technologies such as robotics, drones and 3D printing across our business, to provide new, innovative ways of fabricating and constructing items on and off site and reduce risks.
We have developed a 3D builder robot, which is the first of its kind to use free-form print technology and automotive industry robotics. It can make free-form architecture and complex ornamental exteriors.
